Norwegian Footballer Scores On Header From Midfield

Midfielder Jone Samuelsen from Norwegian club Odd Grenland (awesome name) scored what is thought to be the longest header in the history of soccer last weekend.  With Odd leading Tromso 2-1 entering into injury time on Sunday, the Tromso keeper came forward on a corner kick.  This created the opportunity for Samuelsen to do something that nobody has ever seen before.  As the ball was pinballed around the midfield, Samuelsen launched a header that somehow reached the goalline.  According to the Odd manager, Samuelsen’s header went 57.3 meters.  I can barely run that far, let alone head a soccer ball.  Of course, the video is accompanied by what I assume to be a great and very excited call in Norwegian.
